You’ll recall that during Tiger Woods’ last disastrous attempt to return to play on the PGA Tour, I made a tongue-in-cheek suggestion that he might look at another golfer’s swing (one Hideki Matsuyama) and perhaps ask him how to do it, if he insisted on a planted-heel golf swing.
Today’s DJ’s Birthday and I am otherwise indisposed!
Until now, that is… it’s the same reason you can’t learn another person’s swing model – no one is explaining it accurately or, in some cases even, correctly.
I’m not going to bang on Jim Mclean for the misleading statements in his analysis of Ben Hogan’s swing model, because it’s possible that Hogan deliberately mislead people on his swing mechanics. I wasn’t there when he gave his “secrets” out, but watching the below clip on Hogan’s swing, I couldn’t get through it before starting to write this post.
So, the most I’ve done in recent years is look to see if he’s made any major (or even minor) changes since then.
